Sure, sure, it's all just the whining of Squaresoft fanboys.
"For example, in the past, when we developed console games with a worldwide premise, we lost our focus, and not only did they end up being games that werenâ€™t for the Japanese, but they ended up being incomplete titles that weren't even fit for a global audience."
"For the new games we'll be developing from this point on, while this may sound a bit extreme, weâ€™ve been talking about making them as heavy JRPGs. I believe that way, we can better focus on our target, which will also bring better results."
-Yosuke Matsuda, president of Square Enix
He's such a fanboy.
Square Enix being Square Enix isn't working. Of course they're going to look in new directions. Why are you trying to make that sound unreasonable?
